Our May potluck and silent auction are one of our favorite events of the year. We enjoy seeing everyone, eating together, and having time to visit before the summer break. This year, silent auction proceeds will go toward the Owen Sowerwine Conservation Easement.

We’ll meet in Room 26 of the Gateway Mall (United Way building). This room is on the east side of the building along Glenwood Drive in Kalispell. Look for our banner hanging outside.

Rob Domenech, executive director of Raptor View Research Institute will give a presentation on Osprey monitoring. More information can be found here.

We will not have a virtual component to this meeting due to the number of planned activities.

  • Monday, May 8, 2023
  • Doors open at 5 p.m.
  • Potluck Dinner starts at 6 p.m.
  • Meeting begins at 7 p.m.

Please bring your own plates, utensils and cups. There is no sink to wash dishes so prepare accordingly. Be sure to arrive early enough to look over and bid on silent auction items! Officers and Board Members will also be elected.


The annual Silent Auction at the Flathead Audubon May Potluck is the perfect time to gather all of the valuable “stuff” that you might be able to live without. We’re looking for bird books, outdoor gear, artwork, live bedding plants, bird houses and feeders of all kinds, and homemade pies and cookies. We’ll also have a few special items that have been donated such as the paintings by Tom Roberts below. Proceeds from the silent auction will go towards the Owen Sowerwine Conservation Easement. Please be prepared to take your items home if they do not receive a bid.
